Criminal Girls: Invite Only up for parole in February 2015

You may remember Criminal Girls: Invite Only as the game we covered back in July two different times where it was briefly suggested the game shouldn't be localized. But that's only because I didn't write the post, because I'm...

Review: WWE 2K15

Professional wrestling was a cultural phenomenon when I was younger. In the third grade, conversations at school were a general 50/50 mix of Dragon Ball Z fact repetition and which was better: WCW or WWF. When Hulk Hogan star...

Review: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

For a franchise that’s continually berated for remaining the same over the years, Pokémon is wildly successful, having pushed forward on its own, full speed ahead. It hasn’t needed to change much to sweep t...

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd

Hatsune Miku is an international sensation. Despite the fact that she's a simple digital creation, she's managed to rack up a massive amount of record sales and sold-out concerts, including a tour with Lady Gaga and even an a...

Review: Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit!

Some may call Senran Kagura inherently tasteless, but the series of action-packed brawlers has depth and satisfying combat. The games have swept the handheld community mainly because of their increasingly risqué conten...

I still miss when Lego figures didn't talk, but Lego Batman 3's trailer is cute

Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is available now, for nearly every console imaginable, real and otherwise. It's probably available for the Imagination Station 3000, but supplies are limited. The launch trailer above doesn't rea...

Review: Sakura Spirit

The visual novel genre is multifaceted. It runs the gamut from awe-inspiring and horrifying (à la personal favorite Saya no Uta) to controversial (such as the excellent Kana: Little Sister). Others still are simple veh...

Flyin' to my heart: Seven videogame songs that actually excite me

It's tough for me to get excited these days. I ain't jaded, I just hate it. Actually, it's not like I hate everything. I simply feel anxious nearly every waking moment of my life. I need something to look forward to, no matte...

Review: Mind Zero

At a glance, it's easy to look at Mind Zero and compare it to the Persona series given its art style and the narrative advertised within early trailers and promotional materials. And you wouldn't be incorrect in declaring tha...

Review: Fantasy Life

One of the biggest gripes I hear from friends interested in but hesitant to play Japanese role-playing games is that they're too "complicated." It's a sentiment I've never understood; several take great pains to be accessible...

Review: Fairy Fencer F

If you want to think outside the box, the role-playing genre may not be the perfect playground for you -- at least, when it comes to traditional Japanese titles, which generally confine themselves to a set of tried-and-true m...
